This episode breaks down the reasons why men assume they should dress in a way that attracts women, why that's wrong, and the differences between men's goals and women's goals in how we dress.

This episode discusses both the mechanics of dressing well while carrying a firearm, along with the reasons I personally choose to carry a weapon.
I understand that this is a controversial subject and one that can lead to a heated discussion in the comments. I don't need to defend myself. I may engage in a few comments to clarify some confusion, but I have no interest in engaging in an online battle about gun control.
As part of today's episode I brought on Antonio Centeno of Real Men Real Style. Antonio is a former officer of the USMC and the resident style author for the Art of Manliness. He runs a popular and helpful YouTube channel and is also one of the founders of StyleCon.

This episode breaks down why some of the best sartorial icons in modern cinema are not the heroes, but the villains. I talk about the top three best-dressed villains in all three of the Style Archetypes and provide contrast between this concept and an older post about not dressing like a cartoon character.
This episode was based on a revisitation of my September 2012 post Dressing the (Smaller)Man. Being as I'm six feet tall, I can only approach this topic from a hypothetical perspective. So I decided to bring on two of my good friends who are both style experts and on the shorter end of the spectrum.
Aaron Marino runs I Am Alpha M (http://iamalpham.com/), a hugely popular men's style site and YouTube channel. Aaron puts out daily videos that cover topics like dress, grooming, and fitness and has one of the largest, most abundant personalities of anyone I've ever met.
Brock McGoff runs The Modest Man (http://themodestman.com/), a menswear site dedicated entirely to helping men of shorter stature learn how to dress to their proportions and ensure that their style game is always on point. Brock puts his money where his mouth is and is one of the best dressed, most confident men I know.
In the episode we cover topics like:
Aaron and Brock's Archetypes
How and why they both started caring about men's style
The biggest challenges short guys face when trying to dress better
How to have the right attitude when it comes to custom clothing
Why being short is only one aspect of a man's physical presentation to the rest of the world
Should short guys wear elevator shoes and other height-enhancing articles of clothing.

If you're sick of feeling like your clothes don't adequately express who you are, pick up my new course called Style as Storytelling. It uses examples that span both time and culture to demonstrate four key ways in which men have always used their appearance to improve their lives.
